BJE Center for Excellence in Early Childhood Education


Preschool is, for many families, the beginning of their child's Jewish education. BJE's Center for Excellence in Early Childhood and Parent Education works to ensure that the early childhood educational experience is positive, of high quality, and encourages families to continue the Jewish educational journey of their child(ren). BJE works with families to help them find the right early childhood experience for their child and works with Early Childhood Centers and Parent & Me programs directly to ensure that that experience is the best that it can be.

Federation Vouchers

The Jewish Federation has created a pilot program, run by BJE, to use vouchers as a means for helping Jewish families begin their Jewish journey. In its initial phase, this program is providing cash vouchers for Jewish families enrolling a child for the first time in a Parent & Me program in the West San Fernando Valley or Conejo Valley.
